Street Photography

A sidewalk is a street for feet
With one for cars nearby.
My mind takes detours off and on
And sometimes when its good and gone
I let my spirit fly.


Photos: “Summer Street”, above, “Winter Street”, below. Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the prompt “Street Photography”.  Although these scenes are more of the sidewalk, the street to the right is the main street off the set of town homes where we live.

Winter Street

Outside

Snow wraps white.
Sky beams blue.
Winter’s night–
Calmly true.

Winter Sunset

Let the Light Shine in

Autumn changes focus on school schedules and condo movements, but now for our children, not for us. It’s the same with Spring. In between these events, like sunlight going through the leaves of trees, there is viewing the lake and parkways where trees can reach for the sun because the buildings are small enough for them to have a chance.

LIGHT THROUGH PATIENT TREES
BUILDINGS BLOCK THE AUTUMN SKY
BOTH PROVIDE COOL SHADE
